  1. you felt comfortable with +1.5" and your pga pro (who actually teaches golf for a living and has no doubt seen dozens of swings) tells you to get +1.5" and the idiot golf smith employee measures you, compares you to a rule of thumb chart and tells you to get +.5"... seems like a no brainer to me, pal.
  2. Do you think the pro's could shoot par (or lower) on for every round on every course they play if they dont ever "go for it" or play aggressive shots?
  3. I play in these and have no problems.
  4. loft, lie, head type (oversized heads, player cavities, blades), shaft stiffness/weight, overall build quality, grooves, feel.. lots of differences.
  5. This post is directed at you and anyone else who is insisting the stat that he is 5'1" is absolutely correct. Have ANY of you ever seen him and stood directly behind him (i.e behind him in line at a gas station snack shop) or anywhere even remotely close to him? No? Yea, I didn't think so. I don't know the kid, I've never spoken to him, I don't know any of his friends, however I DO know that he is NOT 5'1". He was standing in front of me in sandals and I was wearing my top siders and he was still less than 4-6" shorter than me. I'm 5'8" So you can do the math. I'm not trying to take a
  6. Exactly, find a new instructor and work on the fundamentals of the game - grip, swing plane, tempo, stuff like that. Secondly, it's very true that every player has a bad day, even the pro's. Tiger missed the cut at a major this year, John daly just shot an 81.. an 81 (maybe good for you and me, but for a pro? ha!)
  7. If you play better with hybrids, get the hybrids. I personally learned to just use 5 and 3 woods but when I was learning to golf I knew nothing of hybrids so i didn't really have a choice. I'm 20 yrs old
  8. you really don't have that many options.. 1. choke up on driver 2. take a lesser club 3. hit it normal, dont be a pansy :)
  9. I go to the range in shorts, t-shirt, and flip flops all the time. Seems to me like you may have a problem hitting push fades? Your grip looks strong (right hand too far under the club) and your clubhead is pretty open at the top of your swing.
  10. I see, thanks :) So you do you have regular flex shafts? Do you like having ~10g heavier fairway shafts?
  11. I'm 20 (21 in a little over a week, so still well within my "testosterone flowing days") and I I definitely would've finished the round. Why did you even need to be at the house party at any given time? And not to sound like a jackass, but were you desperate for some um... female company? Girls come and go (and i'm sure you know that there is no shortage of them) but having a good round of golf isn't as easy as picking up a girl at a house party. Plus it was your friend's sister.. if i had a hot sister and any of my friend's touched her I would beat the hell out of them. That said, alt
  12. i see a couple of solutions to the problem. 1. ignore him, play better than him even when he's trash talking. 2. tell him to cut it out (but if he does you'd better play better than you did when he was talking or else he'll have more reason to laugh at you)
  13. best idea = play par 3 courses. real game exposure
  14. don't you think that extra practice shot affects your overall score even if it's not the one that goes on the scorecard? The "confidence" you gain when you hit that practice shot well, or the irritation it might create when you don't hit it the way you wanted to?
